and big money raised by mitt romney since the debate. his debate performance clearly caught the attention of both republicans, who were worried about the trajectory of his campaign and new voters and the campaign is reporting since the debate performance they've raked in more than $12 million, and, just today, the romney campaign undertaking a national teleconference, and phone banking exercise, made another 2 million contacts with what they hope to be new republican voters. it is a $12 million boost into the debate for mitt romney and stands in the face of staggering numbers from the barack obama campaign reporting last month they collected over $181 million. that does not rival what obama did four years ago in october, before the 2008 presidential election, but is still a massive amount of money, last night, talking to the romney campaign and the big fund-raising dollars the obama campaign was putting up, romney staffers smiled as if to suggest they might top it. >> arthel: and also a statement, romney pushing his tax policy, this weekend, right? >> reporter: of course in the wake of th

[ laughter ] now, we know for sure it was not the real mitt romney because he seems to be doing just fine with his current accountant. >> the romney campaign fired back, quote: president obama offered no defense of his record and no vision for the future. president obama simply offered more false attacks and renewed his call for job-killing tax hikes. earlier today, the president's senior campaign advisor david axelrod said this about the debate. the president's never satisfied with his performance. he is always challenging himself. and he will revie

? he has a 90-de minute debate. you know, i don't understand t. some people say he hasn't had any press conserves, he is not up to that. but he has eye am sure he saw film of gr romney, coming at people in that same way and to be utterly unprepared. >> greta: brit hume tweeted tonight -- he is not here -- but he says, has it occurred to anyone that one reason the president had a rocky debate is not that he performed poorly, but he has a weak case. >> he does. he is on the defensive, unlike 2008. but he knows that. he has gone in there, he has to have an answer when governor romney gives us the figures that he has givenu us before. but to come back strong. he didn't do it. he seemed unprepared. in people say he seemed like he's bored. he's weary with the job. he's tired. he was sullen. he didn't feel like he wanted to be there. he doesn't like the debate. all of these thing, i think, played into it. but i think the president has to realize that this is the worst debate performance, just about i have ever seen. >> greta: he's very fortunate in that today, sort of change the narrative, to
